    Best bet is to take one to your local bike shop and have them match it up.

    I bought some bearings for a Huffy rear wheel last summer. And a few others since.

    I'm afraid I don't remember who I bought them from. But I think that I bought some crank bearings from

    And maybe the rear wheel bearings came from Niagara cycle. Maybe But I'm just guessing on that web address.

    Yes. Google searching for these items is tiresome. But I do remember that that is how I found these bearings. So even though it's frustrating, you should keep on pushing at it. You'll find what you need eventually.

    Be much easier and take a lot less time to just go to your local shop. Wouldn't have to wait on shipping, either.

    Bearings don't go by a certain diameter, nor are the ones in huffy wheels a proprietary size. They go by the number of ball bearings in a ring. If you go to a bike shop and they have a ring with the same number of ball bearings as the one you bring in, it will match. So there is no reason to send someone chasing their tail all over the Internet (especially without being sure where you got them or providing a part number or any other sort of reference) when it's quite possible that his local shop may have them. I'm sorry if I seem a bit rude, but I think it's better to suggest someone try something the easy way first. I'm sure that a trip to his local shop would be a lot faster than the several hours or more that he will likely spend searching the Internet for bearings.

    Well, I don't think you're being rude. And I can even see your point.

    But it only works if you have a bike shop somewhere near-by who is worth dealing with.

    If not, then searching on google is the way to go.

    You're right, but unless he's already had a bad experience at his local shop, probably still worth checking out. I have two shops near me, one is unpleasant as the guy has lied to me more than once (long story won't get into it), but the other one is decent. I go to the other one when I really need something.

    Bike shops near me will laugh at you if you want walmart parts for walmart bikes. Even my DB is too low end for them...........

    to a bike shop huffy means "bicycle shaped object" and most will not touch them as the p[arts are the lowest quality just possible

    If they are loose ball bearings, I would just replace them from a hardware store. If it's not a loose bearing, I would replace it by size. I like McMaster-Carr's website for replacing bearings, and a great selection of fabrications parts. When I have a problem like a rear hub, I use that as an excuse to upgrade to stronger parts.
